The purpose of this project was twofold: to review the literature pertaining to proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching techniques and its benefits for flexibility; and the back-saver sit-and-reach (BSR) portion of the annual FITNESSGRAM physical fitness test was examined in an effort to discover the benefits of PNF stretching prior to the test.
